Lets stop to remember one of the Worlds greatest popes, John Paul the 2nd who died at 9:37 pm Italian Time on Sunday 2nd April 2005.
John Paul will be remembered as the only pope from Eastern Europe.
Born in Krakow, Poland his reign of 26 years as pope from 1978 to 2005 saw so much changes in the European Political landscape.
The fall of Communism and freedom for his native country of Poland.
He is one of the most travelled popes in history having travelled to 129 countries spreading the word of the Lord.
Today Sunday April 2nd 2005 has been a day of tradgedy.
Not only did the Pope die, but early this morning, 9 Australian army service personnel including 2 women were killed in a helicopter crash in Earthquake torn and ravaged Indonesian Island of Nias where they were on a humanitarian relief and rescue effort after the severe earthquakes there last week which thus far has resulted in a death toll of over 1300 lives...Australian soldiers who died trying to help others in need.
Sunday April 2nd will be remembered for a long time as a day of sadness.

Eldorado, you've got some issues man. You seem angry at everyone and everything. Either you are lonely or sick in your upper head? I suggest: see a psychiatrist immediately ;)
